It's hard to add anything new and original to the well-deserved rave reviews that others have left! We spent 11 nights at Finca Good Life and are already looking forward to a return visit. There were three of us -- my husband, his mom and myself. The house worked well for us - cute, cosy and comfortable. Very well-equipped and beautifully maintained.
We rented a 4 wheel drive, manual transmission vehicle from Vamos in San Jose (recommended by Michele, we were very happy) and *almost* got used to driving up and down the steep hill to the farm. The views make all the nail-biting worthwhile -- it is a positively spectacular place. As others have said, if you're looking for a place to eat, read, sleep and relax, you'd never have to leave.
We went out on day trips almost every day, sticking to the Central Valley area and San Jose. There are lots of interesting sights to see and places to visit, with good services everywhere and friendly, welcoming people. That said, this region doesn't feel at all touristy... definitely not one of those resorts that could be anywhere, where you arrive and leave without ever getting a feel for the culture and the country. This is the real deal!
A few favourite spots: Café Cristina (a small organic coffee farm with an exceptional tour offered by the owners), Orosi Mirador, Guayabo National Monument, Irazú Volcano, Tapanti National Park, Rescate Animal Zoo Ave, the market and the basilica in Cartago and the Orosi church.
Our only disappointment was that Michele and Ray were away while we were there so we didn't get to meet them. The couple who were looking after things were ever so nice and helpful though - we wanted for nothing.
As a supplement to the photos and video Michele and Ray have on their website, my husband made a video with his drone during our stay. Go to YouTube Zbip57 and look for Finca Good Life. Enjoy!
Nothing makes us happier at Finca Good Life than to have guests that feel and see the beautiful country, relax and take in the peaceful surroundings and who leave with the desire to return in the future. Thank you for the wonderful video! We love it!
Beautiful mountain top cabin
This place is great for a relaxing stay. The view from the cabin is unbelievable! We had everything we needed here for our short stay and the communication with Michele was great.
We are so very happy you enjoyed your stay at Finca Good Life. Sharing our little piece of paradise is our pleasure!
We visited the property for our honeymoon. The house was so cozy with plenty of space and amazing views. Michelle and Ray helped make our stay so much fun with allowing us to help out around the farm and even pick fresh vegetables out of their garden for our salads at night. We are already discussing making a visit for our five year anniversary.
We will look forward to seeing you in 5 years!!
You both were a delight!
So great, we extended our stay.
Perched atop a mountain, the bungalow porch has an endlessly arresting view of the valley below. Well provisioned kitchen. Michele, an owner, was very fun, attentive and informative. Loved the animals including their milk, yogurt and cheese!
Bill, you and Ritchie were a delight to have here at Finca Good Life!! Please come visit again....Sombra missed you😊😿
I found paradise
You wanna stay here! I will admit that the drive up the steep hill was unnerving but once you reach the top, you're in paradise. The grounds are extremely beautiful. The bougainvillea breathtaking. The cottage is well equipped with all you need (wifi worked well), king sized bed slept well, plenty of towels, however the deck is where I spent most of my time because the view. Total relaxation. Michele was gracious to share food produced by her livestock. Eggs, goats milk and goats 🐐� cheese and the cherry jam...delish! I couldn't resist using the outdoor grill and sitting at the outdoor bar. The dogs are friendly and they hung out with us too. This is the best place to go for rest and relaxation. Stop at the Wal-Mart in Cartago and stock up on your food and wine. Enjoy the view.
The critters and I enjoyed your stay. Spud, Willa and Duke loved hanging out with you and told me to tell you come back soon! I am very pleased you enjoyed our slice of paradise and it was a pleasure to share it with you!
Finca Good Life bénéficie d'une vue majestueuse à 360 degrés, qui comprend les volcans Irazu et Turrialba au nord, ainsi que les falaises blanches et les cascades de Peñas Blancas au sud. Les forêts tropicales bordent la propriété à l'est et à l'ouest. Nous faisons partie de la belle vallée Orosi qui comprend le magnifique parc national de Tapanti. Zip lines et rafting sont à 20 minutes en voiture. La vallée d'Orosi regorge de bassins minéraux chauds, de champs de café et d'innombrables nuances de forêts verdoyantes et d'agriculture.
